The Deal

Chrisette Michele

  • Her voice: it ranges from gale-force power to a graceful coo, evoking Jill Scott by way of Janelle Monae
  • Her music: throwback soul injected with modern sensibilities, as heard in hits “A Couple of Forevers,” “Blame It On Me,” and “Be OK”
  • Where you’ve heard that last one: at the 2009 Grammys, where the song earned her the Best Urban/Alternative Performance award
  • How she was discovered: singing backup for Jay-Z, Nas, and the Game
  • How she made it on her own: after releasing four albums through Def Jam and Motown Records from 2007–2013, she founded her own label, Rich Hipster
  • Her collaborators: they include Kanye, Rick Ross, Drake, the Roots, Wale, will.i.am, and the cast of R&B Divas: Los Angeles

Eric Roberson

  • Claim to fame: singer, songwriter, and producer behind slinky neo-soul hits such as “Still” and “Shake Her Hand”
  • Relationship with major labels: lukewarm at best. He inked a deal with Warner Bros. in the mid-‘90s and the label failed to release his album. He’s kept his distance ever since.
  • Who he does work with: everybody from Jill Scott and Musiq Soulchild to DJ Jazzy Jeff’s A Touch of Jazz production company
  • Grammy-nominated songs from his 2009 album Music Fan First: two—”A Tale of Two” and “Still”

Detroit Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts

Built in 1928, Detroit Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts dazzles patrons with an ornate art-deco façade and lush Spanish Renaissance interior. Elegant columns, glittering chandeliers, and vibrant geometric patterns create a palatial atmosphere in the lobby. The auditorium's intimately arranged velvet seats leave every viewer within 70 feet of the stage, eliminating the need for binoculars or drawn-out games of telephone describing the onstage action.
